Complainant Name:
Ben Chapman MP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sunday Telegraph


Ben Chapman, MP for Wirral South, complained that an article was inaccurate in stating that he had lodged "numerous parliamentary questions about Sino-British trade" since making a trip to China in 2008 (a trip made in his capacity as chairman of the all-party Parliamentary China Group - which promotes engagement between British and Chinese parliamentarians on a range of issues such as science and technology, the environment, education, industry and commerce and human rights - and partly funded by the Jiangsu Provincial People's Congress). Mr Chapman said he had certainly lodged a number of questions about China but only one could possibly be interpreted as relating to trade issues.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper agreed to remove the reference from the online version of the report.
